Bring new life to your floors with the Merola Tile Faenza Nero Encaustic 13 in. x 13 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile. Unlike smaller tiles, these durable ceramic tiles have nine squares separated by scored grout lines, so you spend less time on installation. Imitation scuffs and spots mimic the look of century-old tile, giving it an aged appearance. Rich red tones peek through faded grays and black and provide a stylish contrast. Three variations of pattern arrangements are randomly scattered throughout each case, giving it a patchwork look. Designed by furniture designer and interior architect Francisco Segarra, this tile is perfect for vintage or industrial decor.

Is this Merola Faenza Azul tile safe for a fireplace hearth and is it heat resistant? Thank you.

Asked by Sherry September 14, 2020
2
Answers

Hi! Yes, our Faenza Azul is suitable for this type of installation as this tile is heated to temperatures over thousands of degrees during the manufacturing process and will have no issue withstanding the temperatures of your fireplace. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

there is no bull nose available for this tile. How do you handle the edges?

Answers

Hi! We currently do not offer any trim pieces that would directly coordinate with our Faenza Azul. In these cases, we recommend using a Schluter trim. If interested, we do offer another product with a similar appearance and color. You can find our Twenties White Bullnose here, https://thd.co/2WFH1zS. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Hi! The 3 different print variations of our Faenza Nero feature altered pattern arrangements making it simple to lay out in a random assortment. Repeating designs is authentic to a truly random layout, thus we do not have a template you can follow to avoid this. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Hi! We recommend using our Faenza Azul only for indoor installations as it is not frost-proof. However, it is acceptable to install this tile outdoors if it will not be exposed to freezing temperatures or excessive water. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Asked by Ssndy August 18, 2018

Answers

Hi Ssndy, This product is currently sold as a case of 10 pieces, which covers 12.2 square feet. At this time, this is the only quantity that we are selling our Faenza Azul as. Please keep in mind that we encourage ordering 15% more than your calculated amount to assure that you order enough tile to account for cutting, future repairs and dye lot and caliber consistency. Also, it is always great to have a couple extra laying around the house in the event of a future project or damages down the road. If multiple orders are placed, there is a chance that you may experience issues with dye lot and caliber consistency. As it sounds like this might be the situation, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652 so we can check to see if we have any of the corresponding dye lot left in-stock. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Beautiful design & colour. Edge chipped easily when cut with wet saw but because of the original distressed look of tile, imperfect edge is not very apparent.

This tile is so beautiful!!! I was hesitant because of the price and having to buy a full case but I am so glad I did! My only reason for 4 stars is that they could do a better job packaging it...we had a few that were broke. (gratefully, they did replace them) There is padding around the sides and top but nothing on the bottom or in between the tiles. We used these to do an accent wall in the kitchen but I can imagine how gorgeous they'd be on a floor! Anyhoo, I'm super happy with it!

We love this tile as our kitchen backsplash. We wanted something that would be cheerful but still neutral enough to blend in. My husband installed it, and it was much quicker with 9 squares in 1 actual tile. They feel pretty heavy and didn't chip at all when we were handling them. The 9 squares have space for grout so the reddish color you see in the online pictures disappears and blends smoothly with the separate big tiles. The fake aging marks, which I wasn't a huge fan of when closely looking at the tile from the box without grout, blends in nicely once it's up on the wall, grouted, and with other tile. The fake aging is a pastel-tan color and is on the edges of each of the 9 squares. We were originally going to use a white grout, but we did a practice run on an extra tile not on the wall and white made the tile look dark/dirty. The tiles look blue and white in person, but really the white is a light gray so we ended up using a light gray grout (Silverado, I believe). We would recommend these tiles!
